Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs



The Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Programs provides analytical and developmental support for planning and performance measurement activities within both Academic Affairs and the University.


Planning provides a forum for discussing, analyzing, rationalizing, communicating, and implementing strategic decisions and offers means for administering their implementation.  We serve as analysts, catalysts, and finders of strategies that bring greater intentionality to the alignment of our vision and values with our actions.


Colleges and universities are increasingly asked to demonstrate their value and their effectiveness.  Our office is charged with the responsibility of coordinating the design and implementation of institutional effectiveness measurement and accountability management systems that support the CSU, Chico Strategic Plan for the Future.
